The Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Divsion (SAA) and Hezbollah have been quietly carrying out military operations along the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains, capturing a number of points from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) over the last two weeks.
Last week, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade and Hezbollah imposed full control over the Damascus train station, the Qalamoun Petrol Station, and a number of historical sites after clashing with ISIS terrorists near Rif Dimashq Governorate’s border with the Homs Governorate.
On Monday morning in the Qalamoun Mountains, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade and Hezbollah captured another strategic point from the ISIS terrorists.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63 Brigade and Hezbollah seized the Rawaabi Al-Taheen Al-Thalatha point after a short battle with ISIS near the northeastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains.
Following the capture of this point, the Syrian Arab Army’s sappers were called upon to dismantle the large amount of mines that were set by the ISIS terrorists in order to prevent any-kind of movement by the enemy forces.
This point that was captured by the SAA and Hezbollah is strategically located along the road that leads to the imperative cities of Sadad, Quraytayn, and Maheen in the Homs Governorate’s southern countryside.
